When purchasing in your next vehicle, you may want to ask yourself if there’s any possibility it might be a collectable one day. Classic car insurance company Hagerty has released a list of the top 10 current vehicles most likely to increase in value and retain long-lasting appeal to classic-car buyers.
Continue reading to learn what they are!
Audi RS 3 Sedan
Audi would not have been on the list 10 to 15 years ago, but that has changed. The company has surged into the upper tier of German luxury brands. At a starting price of $54,900, the RS 3 goes 0 to 60 miles per hour in 3.9 seconds.
Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE
This is a pretty obvious choice for the list to most people.
Brembo brakes and performance seats are among the many eye-popping performance features on this track package.
The 650-horsepower beast costs about $70,000. As the Camaro goes, it’s a sports car for the ages.
Dodge Challenger SRT Demon
This car has so much oomph that it’s generated controversy for being a tad over the top.
At 840 horsepower, The National Hot Rod Association certified it as the world’s fastest quarter-mile production vehicle. It can go 0 to 60 in 2.3 seconds.
Honda Civic Type R
It’s the most powerful Honda ever sold in the U.S. And it’s designed to re-engage youthful buyers who had lost interest in Honda.
It has 306 horsepower and a not-too-bad starting price of $34,100.
Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk
It’s a fire-breathing SUV with 707 horsepower that can hold its own on the track against some of the smaller vehicles on this list.
It’s an iconic American vehicle. The base of enthusiasts for the Jeep Wrangler runs so deep that there’s a good chance this recently redesigned model will have lasting power, even though it’s not geared for the track.
We know its shocking to some to see a Kia on this list, but the Stinger turned heads when it debuted at the 2017 Detroit auto show.
The starting price is $31,900 for the 253-horsepower rear-wheel-drive model with a 2-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. But a nearly fully loaded Stinger GT with a 3.3-liter, 6-cylinder twin-turbocharged 365-horsepower engine goes for about $49,500.
Lexus LC 500
This luxury coupe is redefining the Toyota luxury brand’s image for design.
It has a base price of $92,000 for the 471-horsepower, 5-liter, 8-cylinder engine and 10-speed automatic transmission.
Porsche Boxster and Cayman GTS
This list would never be complete without Porsche.
The 718 Boxster GTS is a convertible that starts at $82,800. And the 718 Cayman GTS is a coupe that starts at $80,700. Both vehicles get 365 horsepower and go 0 to 60 in 4.4 seconds.
Subaru WRX STI Type RA
Lately it feels like Subaru can do nothing wrong. The brand is red-hot in the U.S., hitting record sales in 2017 and expecting another record in 2018 despite the industry’s expected decline.
This car starts at $48,995 and is limited to 500 individually numbered units. It’s a four-door sedan, but don’t let that fool you.
